Wendy Hendrick

Thanks once again Abhainn Cruises for an unreal boat trip over to the isle of man TT racing last Saturday morning. Due to the job i do i found them very accommodating as it was a last minute thing on my behalf. Also in terms of coming home it was arranged perfectly as i was able to change my journey times to suit myself without any hesitation and you don’t get to do that everyday. i found the journey safe, friendly and had loads of craic. I would highly recommend it to anybody.

Arnie Lutton

Great trip to the Isle of Mann to see the TT, highly exciting and adventurous trip it was, great professional crew and eager to please, well kitted out with waterproof suits and life jackets, definitely not to be missed, I will be back on Abhainn Cruises without a doubt..

Jenny Chikany Reid

Unbelievable way to experience the water and the stunning coastline! Tim was a legend, great craic from start to finish and accommodating for all passengers! The trips are a rush but the views are something else. 5 star barely cuts it!

Colin Tedford

Ben was an Excellent tour guide, informative and sociable. We’d a fun family day out. Great to see part of the country from a different perspective. Kids were thrilled when he went fast. Everyone in our group from 11-78yrs of age enjoyed the experience. Definitely recommend.
